the wisconsin stop with an afternoon rally in columbus, ohio, a state both sides are fighting hard to win and where polls show the race is close. mr. obama plans to end the day in des moines iowa in the state that propelled him to victory in the democratic caucuses four years ago. >> we need you, virginia. suarez: vice president biden meanwhile held a pair of events in another key battle ground state: virginia. the campaign is headquartered in chicago where the president began his political career. obama national press secretary ben labolt said the main focus for the president's relection teamas getti supporters to the polls. >> we know this all comes down to turnout. we're focused on making sure that every piece of that operation is up and running at 4:00 a.m. on the east coast tomorrow morning. >> suarez: who is out there? is there an army of volunteers that didn't deploy? what are they doing? what are they looking for? >> they are and they're local. we're not talking about importing people into states where they haven't lived. that's the value of having an organization that we built ov
by vitac -- www.vitac.com >> alp >> all righ>> all i'n columbus ohio at the boathouse restaurant. we're in a state that holds 18 electoral votes. i want you to look at this. it is cnn's most up-to-date polls. 50% for the president. 47% for republican mitt romney. but, with the sampling error, it is a dead heat. now, look at this coverage. three days to go and cnn has a battleground state covered like no other news network. all over nevada, wisconsin and here in ohio. all across this country, i'm going to take you on the road with both campaigns in just a minute. first, we have a very interesting election day from the state of new jersey that they tell you about now. it involves you of victims of super storm, sandy who cannot return home or have no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn
. >>> president obama getting ready to speak at a rally in columbus, ohio. we'll go there when we see him. meanwhile, we're going to quickly which can in on three of the battleground states that we expect potentially decide this presidential election. let's start with ohio. its 18 electoral votes are crucial. you've heard it a million times by now. but history show that is republicans don't win the white house if they don't carry ohio. president obama won ohio back in 2008. george bush barely carried ohio in 2004. cnn's martin savidge joins us from cleveland. early voting, martin, very important for the president. how's it looking where you are in cleveland right now? >> reporter: well, at least the cnn poll of the early voters seem to be going very much in president obama's favor. let me point out something here. the early voting has finally come to an end in the state of ohio. the reason i say finally is it began october 2nd. it ended at 2:00 this afternoon. the complete tallies for the state are not up. but up until friday, 1.6 million early votes were cast. of that, 1.1 million were a
ohio voters had 24 hours to early vote in total. in franklin county where columbus is. and 18 1/2 in cuyahoga county where cleveland is. this year a total of 16 hours over those three days. fewer hours of early voting is how you get lines that look like this. in places like columbus and cleveland and akron. it's an impediment to voting, and it is on purpose. here's another one not on purpose. "the new york times" reporting today, quote, in ohio the crucial democratic strong hold of cuyohoga county which includes cleveland had more people vote early every day this year than in 2008, until monday. what happened monday? hurricane sandy. the day of the storm when the daily tally began to lag from its levels of four years ago. so barriers to voting this year are in some cases acts of god. like big, bad weather events. sometimes they are also acts of man. like republican state election officials working to make voting more difficult and less available. in either case, ohio hangs in the balance, as does the election. joining us now is steve kornacki. he's co-host of msnbc's "the cycle"
. and very soon he will be rallying the crowds in columbus, getting a boost from some a-list celebrities. meantime, mitt romney, he is traveling up the eastern seaboard with stops in florida, ohio, virginia, and, of course, new hampshire. and during the next hour we will take you live to his event in fairfax, virginia. speaking of mitt romney, he's already making his case in lynchburg and jim acosta son the campaign trail with him. hey, jim. >> reporter: with a slew of new battleground state polls showing mitt romney trailing president obama only slightly on this day before election day, the gop nominee is making his closing argument to voters. at a campaign stop here in virginia, and earlier this morning in florida, romney warned the crowd that the country could be in store for another recession and potentially another debt ceiling crisis if mr. obama gets another four years in office. romney is trying to make the case that he's the leader that can bring the country together. here's what he had to say? >> when i'm elected, the economy and the american jobs are likely to still be very st
. david? >> reporter: no big surprise there, diane, where you find us tonight, right here in columbus, ohio. take a look here to give you an idea where we are inside a hangar at the airport packed with thousands of romney fans on the eve of the election. as we traveled across ohio today voters know how high the stakes are here in the buckeye state. on the eve of election, a rare quiet moment between mitt romney and his longest running mate, his wife. captured by mitt's body man, as they call him, on the campaign before they greeted a crowd of thousands in virginia. >> are we going to be neighbors soon? [ cheers ] >> reporter: then the crowd with its own election eve countdown. the frenetic push to the finish. romney starting in florida then virginia, tonight here in ohio. but in these final days, romney and both his running mates making it clear the states they need tomorrow. >> the battleground of the battlegrounds. >> is ohio going to do it for us? >> all: yes. >> your state is the one i'm counting on. >> reporter: this image of romney on the campaign plane today, a senior adviser t
in ohio. i want to show you three parts in particular, suburbs of cleveland, columbus and cincinnati. a lot of attention on these spots. let's go in here to lake county. lake county. 2% of the population, the president personally spending time here. why? in 2004, this went to bush. this is territory the president got and he's trying to hold on to. 2008, the president had a slim margin here in lake county. he's definitely trying to hold on to that. columbus, both candidates interested in keeping ahold of this territory. it's 9% of the population. and you come down here to hamilton county, 7%, both candidates spending a lot of time around cincinnati. again, back in 2004, this was bush territory. the president taking that last time around, trying to defend this territory. that's why spare spending so much time personally in ohio. >> hopefully for them the math works. if you camp out you can keep those votes you had last time around. >> that's right. >>> other stories making news, zoraida has those stories. >>> coastal communities are sitting in the path of nor'easter. 1.2 million people
. >> and take a look at ohio. the president holds a two-point lead according to a "columbus dispatch" poll leading 50%-48%. also, "the denver post" finds the president leading mitt romney, 47%-45%. >> another reason to be disturbed. right now, willie, mitt romney should be ahead in colorado. he should be ahead -- i'm just saying, he should be ahead in colorado, in virginia. he should be ahead in north carolina. he should be ahead in florida. he is according to "the miami herald" poll. virginia and colorado are two states that really give me pause for the romney camp. >> especially virginia. let's pause for a moment and appreciate how close this race is. we just went through about ten polls all either tied or within the margin of error. >> today, 24 hours to go, you can look at the polls. it's okay. >> they matter. >> i would ask you, mark, about ohio. we've sat here for weeks and said this is really going to come down to ohio. that poll was two points. the president has had some polls over the last week that showed him with a bigger lead. where are you hearing this race is right now? >> it
crowd about the hometown news you cannot expect that lie to float. and it is not floating. the "columbus dispatch fact check" says, "oh, boy." cleveland plain dealer's er89 says "flailing in ohio romney rolls out jeep ploy." say what want about mr. romney's overall relationship with the
in dayton and in cincinnati and columbus, thousands of people stood in 30-degree weather for hours waiting to vote this weekend. when he was asked about these long lines john husted had this to say. >> in ohio, we have 35 days to vote. this is the 34th day to vote. it's very easy to vote in this state. >> very easy, as long as you have a snow suit and a tent and a spare six hours. former new jersey governor christine todd whitman summed it up beautifully. >> i do have to say that in this day and age it's absolutely inexcusable in this country we have anything like this going on. i led delegations around the world to watch voting and this is the kind of thing you expect in a 30 world country, not in the united states of america. >> good for her. good for her. when people stand in line for hours in the heat or in 30-degree cold just for the purpose of exercising this privilege of voting, you at home should be furious! and even more, you should be inspired. i know that i am. i mean this is america. it shouldn't be made to hard, but i just want to say thank you to those voters in florida and i
, and we start with mike tobin in columbus, ohio, many still say voters there, mike, will decide of course, who actually wins this election and how it comes back to ohio. >> right. >> certainly does, that's why you have the candidates making the mad final dash in the buckeye state and both of them and the first lady made appearances yesterday. the obama campaign goes into the home stretch enjoying a significant lead in early voting returns, but the romney campaign says it's not as significant as the lead he held over john mccain in this same time frame. they believe they can make up the difference on election day, so, you have both sides going into the home stretch here extremely energized, the ground game, microtargeting of voters, personal contact is unlike anything you've seen in previous campaigns, we caught up with the group, americans for prosperity as they were mobilizing en masse and heading out into the neighborhoods. generally what you see with all of these door knock efforts is a mobilization of the base is the get out the vote effort. what americans for prosperity were doing, t
from texas today. she's out on the campaign trail in columbus, ohio. good to see you as well, congresswoman. >> fredricka, good to be with you this afternoon. >> excellent. let's begin. we're talking about these candidates, president obama, mitt romney, they are crisscrossing these battleground states. let me begin with you, congressman price. you heard kyung talking about colorado being so vital. it was obama country during the last election, but with the one third independent voters made up much of suburban moms, is this a strategy that romney is going to be spending more time there later on today. how focused is he on colorado and trying to sway perhaps those one third independent voters? >> that's colorado and it's wisconsin and it's ohio and pennsylvania and all of the other states that are still in play. and the independent voters are indeed absolutely pivotal. each candidate want to make sure they get out their base, their base voters. when we look at the independent votes which is why we believe so strongly that governor romney will be the next president, we see high
in columbus, ohio. shannon bream at the republican watch party if des moines, iowa. good evening, shannon. >> reporter: hello, bret. well, republicans here in iowa are hoping that romney will pull off a somewhat unexpected win. there is something down ticket that could help him. in 2009, the state supreme court here legalized same-sex marriage. that motivated and mobilized conservatives and evangelical christians. they had three of the justices that signed on to the opinion removed. a fourth justice on the ballot. that is not all. control of the state senate is control by democrats. conservatives hope to win it back to give them control of the both state houses and enabling them to pass legislation to been a the same-sex marriage. if the evident to get out the vote on the same-sex marriage issue is successful, it could help romney. secretary of state here says there have been very few complaints about the voting irregularities. the biggest complaint is vote whose didn't get the "i voted" sticker. take it now to steve brown in ohio. >> reporter: hey, shannon. yes, in ohio, the polls close
to float. and it is not floating. the "columbus dispatch fact check" says, "oh, boy."
as many people to vote. that led to this happening in columbus at abc's mike mccarthy will show us. >> the line stretched down the sidewalk and reached around the corner for at least the second straight day. >> i just wanted to make sure that my vote was counted. >> and hundreds of people are here right now doing just that. it has already been a record-setting year for early voting turnout. already about 10,000 more franklin county residents have come here, have voted in person, compared to the last presidential election back in 2008. >> now, how about in florida? well rick scott the republican governor there has done his best to limit voting there as well. he has cut early voting hours. there is been long lines eight to nine hours to vote. unbelievable. and he's restricted absentee voting as well. nbc has a report about what happened today. they had shut down some places over the weekend so they had to open up one area today and shut that one down as well. let's let them explain. brbt[ chanting ] >> frustrated voters outside the miami dade election office this afternoon. they came
event, he helped introduce them in columbus as well as perform a song although he change the lyrics to his song. 99 problems and mitt ain't one. back to you guys. >> thank you. >>> we know he spent his last night in iowa. why is that so important? where will the president be tonight? >> reporter: you know, we were sort of talking earlier just about the significance of iowa really for him it's where everything started off with that initial support at the last election that helped spur his career or his campaign rather and get little to the position where he is now. in terms of what the president hopes to do today, in his election day tradition that he hopes to continue here, he actually is planning on picking up a game of basketball with friends and some campaign aides. he hopes to sort of have a good luck charm that worked well for him in the past and there is a possibility he may try to visit some of his volunteer centers here in chicago to thank the people that have been working so hard for his campaign. >> it's been a long campaign for both candidates. they deserve a rest today.
most overrated white people, columbus to reagan to shakespeare, and the only thing than being a white person speaking those words is being a black person who steps out of line. all you have to do is look at city sigh dash, and thank you, ann, for standing up for her value -- valiantly. we really appreciate that. it would be absurd if it was not so wrong. that's the truth. as for example rick douglass said liberty is purpose less if the seek to -- ann practices freedom of speech every single day, and i'll leave you with this. i think the most accurate comment about ann's current book came from jeffrey lord and the american spectator who said "mugged is not just a bug, -- book, but a public service." i agree with that wholeheartedly. [applause] ann coulter is, indeed, a public servant, and i take that public servant over community organizer any day. please join me in welcoming ann coulter. [cheers and applause] [applause] [cheers and applause] >> thank you, thank you. you're too kind. i hope this is not like christie's speech at convention where he got a bigger welcome than an exit.

. >> reporter: good morning from a barn outside columbus, george. that's right, with this race so close here in ohio, any major event could tip undecideds or soft voters into the obama camp or the romney camp. so, all eyes are on the jobs report in this nail-biter of an election. stumping for votes, the candidates leave no stone unturned. in west virginia, romney was heckled. >> what about the climate? that's what caused the storm. >> reporter: he did some heckling of his own against the president. >> the president said he was going to consider putting in place a secretary of business. i don't think that what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something about job creation. i think it would be helpful to have a president that actually understands job creation. >> reporter: as the president did in green bay, vegas, and boulder. fresh from hurricane sandy, he talked unity. >> there's no democrats or republicans during a storm. just fellow americans. >> reporter: but minutes after he profiled bipartisan, he launched some attacks of his own. >> governor romney's been u
ron claiborne wants to weigh in. he's in ohio, he's in columbus right now and you are there at the secretary of state's office and we know every single vote, every polling place is being watched tonight, ron. >> reporter: they're being watched very closely and, diane, 1.6, 1.8 million voters actually voted early either by absentee ballots or in person going to early voting stations. those will be the first votes counted. we start to get those in about 20, maybe 30 minutes from now. we will get an indication, for example, if there is a high turnout in those early voting areas around cleveland. that would be very favorable to president obama. and meanwhile, as you were saying, the auto bailout has figured prominently in this state something like one in eight jobs are involved in the auto industry and the obama campaign was able to really bludgeon mitt romney with that issue in recent days in a way magnifying romney's attack line saying that those jeeps would be built in china. the response was so overwhelming by the obama administration and auto executives it may hav
ohio, our capital city, columbus, ohio. >> you're looking at everything. sounds like you just listed absolutely everything in your entire state, sir. >> every vote counts in ohio. >> it certainly does, governor strickland. my question for you -- margaret hoover here -- what are the democrats doing specifically to make up for the loss in voter registration that has happened since 2008? some reports have it as high as 490,000 voters, fewer are registered to vote now, four years later. what have you done to make up for that? especially the losses in democratic counties. >> this obama organization is phenomenal, let me tell you. we know where our voters are. we've been in contact with them. the obama organization never left ohio. they've been here for the last four years. we've had over 700 organizers over the last several months in ohio. 120 field offices or more, probably a little more than that. and so we've got our early vote out. we're happy about that. and now today tess a beautiful day and we know where our voters are and we're communicating with them. i'm just so -- so confident
herald." the end of the road, clinton stops here. -- clumps here, romney finishes tonight. the columbus dispatch out of ohio, it's decision time. poll hours, 6:30 a.m., 7:30 p.m. the subhead, the last push. a big choice on the government's role is how they decided to headline the subhead. candidates may be close in the polls but their visions are wide apart. just to give you a sam planing of how the newspapers are playing out. as far as our question of why you decided to vote or maybe not decide to vote, there is a website who writes about the idea of those within florida, she's intrusived about those who are not going to vote tonight. she writes in part this. it's true that everybody should vote. but what you'll never hear from the parties is that democracy is better off without voter who is don't do any homework. the rhetoric you hear is about the absolutely no obligation to vote but there are valid reasons to sit it out and among the, if your ballot will an exercise of random selection. you don't feel comfortable with the choices, you might be in the same boat as craig engle. he's a
, with the potential to go to law school. i think romney lost a lot of people in columbus because of that 47%,. >> i am really upset. i cannot believe we again got mr. obama into the white house. i am a nurse. it has been hard in the lower rio grande valley finding a job for a lot of nurses. i feel like patients are not being seen, and so forth, due to to lot of medicare cuts. you see it. yet you go to the groceries and see ladies with their michael korda's purses -- kors purses, and they pay with their lone star card. >> i am shocked and dismayed how this man could have won again. the election -- so many people are out of work. i am an executive in this community who lost his job, who was able to find a job. there are no jobs. the woman who called before, the situation with obama, with our troops and with our embassy -- i think he handled it improperly. i would not be surprised that there might not be an impeachment trial that starts. i think the country is more divided today than ever before. i think he was able to win because so many people have moved to the bottom side of the scale, because there i
. then, as far as your forecasting is concerned. look at this, columbus, 66, 76 at oklahoma city. but then that front moves through and temperatures take a big dip, dropping down into the 40s and 50s. that's your latest weather, your local forecast right after this. >>> good morning to you. i want to start with a live picture, beautiful, clear conditions over the greater bay area. this is sunol. we have no problems in terms of weather delays right now at any local airports and just getting to grandma's house, maybe you're traveling into the central valley, we're looking good. 68 in livermore, 66 in san jose. the next couple days temperatures staying nice and comfortable from everybody here at nbc bay area, happy thanksgiving. >>> and that's your latest weather. natalie, willie? >> looking good out there. we're going to have much more from the parade. the 86th annual macy's thanksgiving day parade, include some of the performers. we're just getting started. first, this is "today" on nbc. >>> coming up, martha stewart and giada de laurentiis whip up a thanksgiving feast. into their
. there was a large, large african-american turnout. there was also white liberal turnout. a suburb in columbus, places where the other part of the obama coalition came out. the kristen may put a very small role but it didn't fundamental change ohio, and i think that story was well overplayed. was a way to election? no. it was close. but there were some things that win in both direction. one thing i often like to look at his it happened to the state legislatures. and here you can see some big wave of elections like 2010 for republicans where they gained 720 seats across the country out of about 6500. the early numbers are to be a move in a democratic direction, about 186 or so. but what's interesting really is not everything was going in the same direction. look at blue states, definite movement and the democratic direction but there's also some movement back to the red states in the other direction. states like maine and minnesota, part of new hampshire legislature went democratic, went democratic the. change democratic majority. but republicans picked up legislation in arkansas. big gains in
